Soul on Fire is an inspiring musical revolving around the eternal themes of love and sacrifice. The setting exists in a utopian society called “Golden City,” and yet the actors reveal a range of human emotions that cannot be confined within pre-set, perfected standards. The main characters, Kisha and Mozes, perform a heart-wrenching drama that consists of forbidden love, secrets, untruths, and hypocrisy. Mozes must choose between his love for Kisha and his very existence.

Soul on Fire features Shirley Murdock, who is best known for Elektra Records Top 10 R&B hits such as, “In Your Eyes” and “As We Lay.” Tyrone Stanley, who wrote the musical, is also performing in Soul on Fire, much to the delight of audiences who saw his debut in Toni Morrison’s Margaret Garner in New York City Opera. Stanley is graduate of Eastern Wayne High School in Goldsboro, North Carolina and studied with the late, great Mr. Angelo Holman, Jr., before embarking upon successful performing arts careers.

The Midtown International Theatre Festival’s 2013 Season runs from July 15 – August 4, 2013 at the June Havoc Theatre, 312 W. 36th Street, 1st floor; the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre, 312 W. 36th Street, 1st floor; the Main Stage Theater, 312 W. 36th Street, 4th floor; and the Jewel Box Theater, 312 W. 36th Street, 4th floor.

John Chatterton created the MITF in 2000, a Midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, as a way to present the finest Off-Off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety. In 2003, the MITF moved its activities to their current location, the Theatre Building on W. 36th St., where it has been successfully ensconced since. In 2008 the Festival expanded from two theatres in that building to four, at the WorkShop Theater Company and Abingdon Theatre Company spaces. The MITF’s artistic emphasis is on the script itself, and therefore the Festival focuses on effective but minimal production values.
